You probably haven’t heard of Wheeler, Oregon. It’s a sleepy town on the Oregon Coast named after some timber baron, and is probably my favorite spot so far on the coast.
It’s got everything- water views, mountain views, and forests.
It’s an estuary, which means it’s ecologically diverse from all of the salt water and fresh water coming together, and is home to all sorts of cool birds like cranes and herons.
You know how I love clouds? Wheeler has fantastic clouds. The mist rolls in so, so romantically
The first time we stayed at this hotel that is lucky enough be right on the bay.
I had the best time kayaking in the bay- it was near sunset, with the golden light shining on us and we were paddling right next to all the ducks and birds.
Be careful though, the second time I stayed with them they wouldn’t let me borrow the kayaks. I think you need to be staying with them at least 2 nights.
